FIRST EDITION. This Constructivist photo-essay describes an international Young Pioneers conference in Moscow that drew children not only from the USSR but also from the USA, England, China, Germany and Switzerland. Among those who attended were the American Elmer MacDonald, the son of an Irish-American strike leader; and the African-American Shelly Strickland, who left the Boy Scouts to join the Pioneers. A photograph of children carrying banners displaying of popular Soviet picture books and Ezh. (Hedgehog) are reproduced on p 26.
